Charlie,

The ugly American lives.

No. When travelling in other countries, I do my best to respect their social customs so as not to give offense.

Norm, I seriously doubt you would actually say that to the woman.

If she singled me out and acted in the rude manner stated in the OP, I most assuredly would. I DO have a backbone, and don't hesitate to use it when people treat me in that way.

Of course, if she were to make a request in a courteous manner rather than a demand, I would respond very differently.

Norm.
